A truly exceptional stone villa, one-of-a-kind in terms of preserved local architecture and refined ambience, stylishly decorated with antique pieces and strategically located next to globally famous beaches. The property is a 150 year old residence, previously home of the current owner's family dating back at least five generations, which was recently restored to very high standards. The villa, made out of local stone and wood, combines authenticity with a get-away-from-it-all environment. Generosity in space as well as attention-to-detail are evident all around, whereas a colorful garden with countryside views of small vineyards, olive groves and fig trees promises full relaxation.

Meli is a family-friendly villa as it offers plenty of room for the kids to play and the adults to relax. There are quite a few facilities for babies and young toddlers whereas board games as well as mountain bikes are provided targeting older children and adults. Located within a quiet village, untouched by tourism (and traffic), Meli provides for the ideal setting for kids to safely get around. On the other hand, it is also idyllic for groups of couples or just groups of friends as it features three totally independent bedrooms with own facilities per room (ensuite bathroom, TV, small fridge, a/c, bathroom toiletries etc.). The property may actually accommodate up to 10-12 (if children included).

Its rustic kitchen is fully equipped so as to make cooking a joyful activity and a lot of our guests do make good use of either the kitchen facilities or the large bbq outdoors. As ana alternative, one can try the Georgia's home-made delicacies at the local taverna (5 mins walk) or other Greek specialities offered at restaurants in the wider area.

With regards to location, Meli is advantageously located close to a number of Greece’s best beaches some of which are award-winners in a global context. The most adventurous will get amazed by the dramatic settings of beaches such as Porto Katsiki and Egremni, whereas families with small children will definitely enjoy the convenience of easy access to beaches like Gialos, a long stretch of white sand and exotically colored waters. Restaurants, minimarket, bakery is located within 1.6kms, whereas a full array of amenities with larger supermarkets, shops, nightlife and watersports (dinghy sailing, scuba diving, private boat hire) may be found at picturesque seaside village Vassiliki at 12km.

The Ionian Islands region

With an area of 302.5 square meters and 23,000 inhabitants, Lefkada is the 4th largest island in the Ionian Sea and is located between Corfu and Kefallonia. Lefkada benefits from easy access as it is connected with the mainland by a floating bridge. The island's climate is mild, with long spells of sunshine throughout the year, mild winters and warm but pleasant summers due to the cooling breeze.

Lefkada is by 70% covered by mountains with the tallest top of all being Stavrota (1.182m) at the centre of the island. As a result of this, it has narrow plateaus, fertile valleys and canyons with rich plantation, while it also has notable flora. It also has many springs, like the known Kerasia springs in Sivros, torrents that form small cataracts like the Dimosari in Nydri and impressive canyons like the ones in Mellisa of Sfakiotes.

Lefkada's coastline is comprised of impressive beaches, peninsulas, capes, coves that make magnificent natural ports towards the east as well as the south side of the island. The west part of the island has steep cliffs that extend down to unique long and sandy beaches with exotically turquoise waters. It is said that the island owes its name to its white cliffs in the south part of the island and especially the cape of Lefkatas where, according to the legend, the poet Sapfo jumped off its steep cliffs in despair for her love.


Dragano village is located southwest of Lefkada, a peaceful village untouched by tourism, surrounded by nature and inhabited primarily by honey producers. It is privilegely located close to some of the best beaches of Lefkada. It is actually located at the start of the peninsula that hosts 3 of he most famous beaches (Porto Katsiki, Egremni, Gialos) while it is still very close to many more amazing beaches to the north (just outside Kalamitsi village, Kathisma etc).
